All Good Things...
must come to an end. Somethings, for the second time round. Yes after a fun filled couple of months, it was once again time to leave Cayman in pursuit of our next adventure. Europe is calling and we must get a move on. Okay, well once we actually get our workpermits approved! In the meantime, we are going back to catch up with family and friends in Saskatchewan, given that we didn't have much time after finishing our Round the World Trip. Of course....we do have to go through Florida on the way back so we might be a tad delayed!!

A few farewell pics....

Farewell brunch at the Ritz with Anne & Rob. Yummmmmmmmy!!!

Oh and then a few drinks at the pool bar.

Which somehow ended up at Calico Jack's further down the beach.

Is it just me, or did it get dark?

Rob doesn't realize it yet, but that puppy is going home with him tonight!!! Always a good night when you end up with a new addition to the family the next day!!!

Okay so brunch ended up turning into more than a couple of hours....but that didn't stop Wade from another leaving duo with his workmates. So turns out, he really was the middleman at work!

Cheers Cayman, we're off!

What or what should we do on a Sunday afternoon? I know, let's drive out to Driftwood bar for a Cayman BBQ and an afternoon of cards.

Yes it's a tough life when the bars have a view like this. A wonderful lazy Sunday afternoon. This is what weekends should always be like.

Mmmmmm....Chicken & Ribs!!!

Yes and then the cards break out. It all starts out as fun and games....

But then there appears to be some controversy!

However, still a relatively happy ending! After all even when the games were over, there were still more mudslides to drink!!!

Starfish Safari
So Africa isn't the only place that you can go on a safari. Okay, there are no elephants, lions or rhinos, but Cayman does have starfish! So bound and determined to have no missed adventures in Cayman we set out in search of starfish. We added the safari part because we went out in Rob & Anne's jeep and took it slightly off the road and into the sand. That meets our definition of safari, well for this tour anyways!

A little bit windy, but all part of the adventure!!!

Jeez Leadbetter, this is an adventure. You are going to have to get your feet wet and leave the safety of the pier if you want to find some starfish!!!

Good thing the girls were along to take care of matters. Although notice we didn't want to get our shorts wet either! Hmmm....I wonder how this is going to go...... Anne, you better not push me or I could take a pretty good nose dive.

Victory! Look at these pretty little starpeople. Wade, can we live under the sea? I hear the Simpsons are thinking about it.

Well we had a successful safari, but I could not convince Wade to move under the sea. Probably because last I checked they only serve seaweed there, not beer.

Cayman Kayaks
So how would you like to have your office look like this? Seriously, this is our friend Bob's office. Bob started his own Kayaking Company in Cayman called Cayman Kayaks and has a nice little set up on the beach at Kaibo Yacht Club, complete with wireless internet. Now that's what I call "livin' the dream" !!!

So we tried two different times to go on the Night Bioluminescense Tour and got rained out each time. Unfortunately, for us we were only back in Cayman for 2 months and so we ran out of time. Luckily, Bob suggested taking us out to Stingray City. So we set out on a 3 1/2 mile journey to play with the Rays in North Sound. Here is a picture of Nicola and I in perfect paddling unison!!

A few friends came for a visit, but we did the unforgivable and forgot to bring squid treats. So as true fairweather friends the Rays took off for greener pastures...urh I mean bluer waters.

So after our friends left us, we decided to just chill out and enjoy our beautiful surroundings. Cheese Bob!

Eventually it was time to leave and I realized it would be no easy feat to get back into the Kayak!!! They really don't make this easy for short people, particularly when everyone is filming you for entertainment purposes. Okay, I have to say not one of my most graceful moments, but really what is a gal to do? Bob threatened putting this on his website for all the tourists to see, lucky for me he conceded to me putting it on our blog.

Well as you can see I made it back into the kayak and to solid ground. Of course after a rigorous day out on the water it was naturally time for a bevie at the Yacht Club. What a Happy Ending to a wonderful day.
